Good news, dad! All those times your daughter appeared to be tuning you out? She was probably paying more attention than you thought.

The study shows that women born in the mid-1970s are over three times more likely than women born at the beginning...

Women prefer mates who are recognized by their peers for their skills, abilities and achievements, U.S. researchers said. The study, published in the journal Personal Relationships, also found women did not favor men who use coercive tactics to subordinate their rivals. Women found dominance strategies of the latter type to be attractive primarily when men used them in the context of male-male athletic competitions. Jeffrey K. Snyder of University of California, Los Angeles, and colleagues...

Men with scars on their face are more attractive to women seeking short-term relationships, researchers in Britain said. Dr. Rob Burriss, from the University of Liverpool's School of Biological Sciences, says that it was previously assumed that in Western cultures scarring was an unattractive facial feature but in non-Western cultures they were perceived as a sign of maturity and strength. The researchers found that women preferred men with facial scars for short-term relationships but they...

By Jessica Yadegaran As a relationship writer, I have to hear it all the time. Men don't bond with each other the same way women do. They don't like talking about their feelings. I hear this, naturally, from therapists paid to pull these feelings out of men, from couples -- and even from dudes themselves. But I think we're in a touchy-feely renaissance. My boyfriend spends hours on the phone helping his buddy analyze a relationship. And I'm pretty sure my dad has a man crush on Barack...

By Anonymous To fathers of school-age children throughout the Midland Empire: There is still time to do the right thing. While some schools have started classes for the fall, or will do so this morning, others will begin the new school year later in the month. St. Joseph Public Schools are among those that will begin next Monday, Aug. 25. It doesn't matter either way. Whether the first day of classes still awaits or whether it recently has come and gone, there is still time for fathers...

Study author Julia Heiman, director of The Kinsey Institute at Indiana University, said regardless of age or nationality, men...

By Joan Burnie Q IS it OK for boys to have sex when they are under 16 or is does the law apply to them as well? I thought it was just girls but then you wrote that it wasn't allowed for boys either. So why is this? Boys can't get pregnant and, in my school, people think you are gay if you don't start having sex with girls as soon as your hair comes in. A THE law applies equally to boys and girls. There are sound reasons for it as well - not least that while someone may physically be...

By Slevin, Kathleen F This article explores ways that men in later life may attempt to retain or regain notions of youthful manhood-in particular, by disciplining their bodies through exercise or dieting. Sexual orientation is also a focus because it shapes experiences with manhood and with aging. Because heterosexuality is venerated and homosexuality stigmatized, gay men may experience old age differently compared to heterosexual men. Throughout the paper, I draw on unpublished empirical...

By Jackie Hunter Metrosexuals come in more than one shape, says Jackie Hunter THE DANDY METROSEXUAL A prancing, posing, preening peacock of a man, whose blatant fondness for stacked heels, big hair, full make-up, flounced shirts and hip-hugging leather trousers paradoxically makes him catnip to red-blooded females. 'Man enough to be a woman' is the message given out by the likes of Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen, Eddie Izzard, Noel Fielding and Russell Brand, above, who want you to know...
